Description

Elongated, with an area of ​​10 hectares, Kanifinolhu located E Reef North Male Atoll, is surrounded by a large lagoon that is home to an island of fishermen.
Shallow at E, the lagoon can reach 6 to 8 m in W.

Ideally located for the practice of diving, near the Great Barrier Reef, this island is considered one of the most beautiful of Male 'Atoll N.

Surf spot known as "Piddies - Ninias": Slow right-hander, good for beginners and long-boarders.
Best on W-NW winds with a moderate S swell. However swells larger than 4 feet spoils it.
Named Ninjas because many Japanese surfers seem to like it. Access by boat.

Allongée, d'une superficie de 10 hectares, Kanifinolhu située à l'E du récif de Malé atoll Nord, est entourée d'un très grand lagon qui abrite une île de pêcheurs.
Peu profond à l'E, le lagon peut atteindre 6 à 8m à l'W.

Idéalement située pour la pratique de la plongée sous-marine, à proximité immédiate de la grande barrière de corail, cette île est considérée comme l'une des plus belles de l'atoll de Malé N. 

Spot de surf connu sous le nom de "Piddies - Ninias": bon pour les débutants.
Meilleur spot avec vents d'W/NW avec une houle modérée S.

Nommé "Ninjas" parce que de nombreux surfeurs sont japonnais.
Accès par bateau.
